's busiest commuter rail line. jonathan martin joins us from the crash site. and jonathan, i believe we are standing by to get an update on the investigation soon >> reporter: that's right, tony. we are expecting a news conference in the ntsb at 4:00 o'clock. so any minute, we will learn something. hopefully, as you mentioned, the investigators do have those two black boxes, the black box data recorders. one from the front of the train. one from the back. that hopefully will allow them to learn some information about what caused this deadly crash. tony, the big questions really out there at this point are: you know, was this caused by a mechanical error, operator error or possibly something else? maybe something with the tracks. now, the train's conductor who was injured, himself, in this derailment has said that there was an issue, possibly with the braking system. but these recorders are really significant because they can tell investigators down to the second what was going on with the air pressure in the braking system. so they will be able to tell to the one-second intervals whethe
colleague jonathan capehart actually pointed out this week, autopsies are done on dead things. so there you go. joining me now is msnbc contributor and "washington post" opinion writer, jonathan capehart. staff writer for par dor pandor daily, david sirota. you guys generally do pretty well talking to women. let's take it step by step, okay? >> okay. >> all right. here's the thing about women. no matter the message, it's the policies. like, they still just don't seem to get that. if we, you know, if we look at them -- i just want to play something ken blackwell actually said this morn ing. i don't think he got the sensitivity memo, though. >> at the end of the day, republicans don't have a problem working and talking with women. we control 30 of the governorships. we control 26 state houses and -- and senate chambers. you know, we, in fact, know how to speak to women on their policy issues. >> okay. so the message i took away from that was, like, we don't have to know how to talk to women because we're in control. basically. if you look at, jonathan, what's been going on at the state level
in our economy. >> joining me today, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart, former white house press secretary and founding partner off-almost said founding father -- founding father and partner of inside agency robert gibbs, congressional reporter for buzz feed and political reporter and white house correspondent at the "huffington post" sam stein. we talked a lot about the pizza versus the pizza box. after the gop autopsy, the republican conviction they didn't actually need to change the product they were selling, they just needed to change the marketing. it's unbelievable me, the whole 47% thing clearly has not made a dent. nowhere do you see that in a more pronounced fashion than republican talking points on unemployment. >> largely, if you ask most members of the gop, 47% to them wasn't a gaffe, it's a belief. i heard it in debates i had with people all of last year before the tape was uncovered. i do think, look, this is one of those things that the republicans will either learn this the easy way or the hard way. i remember watching these debates about unemployment insura
of the busiest train lines. jonathan, good afternoon. how are the cleanup efforts going right now? >> well, stephanie, i would say crews are on the final stretches of work, at least here on the scene they brought on a out a cadaver dog. they uprighted most of the cars at this point. this is the final car. if you can see through the bushes here you'll see that final car there. they were just able to upright with these large cranes that they've been using and they've been hauling the other cars away. in fact the one you've been looking at, the earlier video, this is the car that was just inches from the water, where near where the hudson and harl rivers meet. that fourth person found inside the car. they were able to upright the cars. there were seven of them total and 150 people aboard as we've been reporting when this train was en route to grand central station. crews have finished their work in terms of getting them upright and moving them away, still not clear when service will be restored. there's still lots of working to do and an investigation that could take another seven to ten days
>> hello and welcome to al jazeera america. i'm jonathan betz in new york. parliament calls for new elections. protestors say that's not enough. in ukraine, a symbolic gesture. as protestors topple a statute of a hero. >>> and early venezuelan elections, as that country struggles. tonight the crisis deepens in thailand. the prime minister suddenly dissolves parliament and is calling for new elections. picture of thousands rallying in the capitol where it is 11:00 in the morning. opposition party resigns from conflict. and the conflict is not over yet. wayne hay has the latest. >>> there is no indication that the prime minister will dissolve parliament, that they will change their goals. those goals have in fact changed a bit over the past few weeks. at first they said they would accept house dissolution. that quickly changed into their goal being the removal of the regime, referring to the former prime minister who was ousted in 2006 and lives in self proclaimed compile. his sister is now prime minister. they say the government is corrupt, this current government is corrupt and only
york, msnbc political analyst, jonathan alder, and in washington, msnbc analyst and former rnc chairman, michael steele. and who is never grinchly, michael steele. >> no, never. >> in the spirit of the holiday season, i would like you to tell us, as we're 11 or 12 days before the next recess, what have the republican members of congress, other than throwing a lot of shade at healthcare.gov, what have they fliaccomplished 2013? >> not a lot. that's obvious. this congress has done very, very little. there are eight working days left in its year. and, you know, at the end of the day, they're going to have to look back and go to their constituencies and account for that in some manner, i'm sure, going into next cycle. yes, there's been a lot of noise around obama care. and its launch in october. and the failures that float from that. but as you know, joy, i've said from the very beginning of this year that, you know, the party has an opportunity to put some real -- substantive policy on the table to differentiate itself not just rhetorically from this administration, but, you know, and poli
is a political analyst and jonathan capehart is an msnbc contributor. of course, a "washington post" opinion writer. howard, i was really taken with your perception there. i actually missed it because i was so busy trying to prepare myself to follow up. but you hit something in your years of experience, presidents don't talk about what it's like to be me, if you will. >> no, they don't. and they don't do it in public. i mean, i've covered a lot of presidents, chris, and i've gotten to know them pretty upclose. and they are sometimes self-reflective. but usually in private and usually only momentarily. they don't let their guard down very much. but i think in this case in that interview yesterday which i still think was extraordinary, the president was kind of thinking out loud and talking out loud about his situation. let's face it, his poll ratings are down, his number one program is controversial. he's got three years left in a second term he's not sure what he's going to do with. and i think sometimes he wonders how he's going to muster the motivation to muscle through, as he puts it. tha
for sure why it de-railed. let's take you to jonathan martin. he is at the crash site in the bronx. jonathan? >> reporter: hey, tony. you know, investigators have said from the start that this is a very preliminary information, but as you mentioned, these two black box data recorders have revealed key information. one frust from the front and one from the back, showing this train was going too fast echoing what a lot of these passengers and witnesses have been saying from the start. >> reporter: investigators with the national transportation safety board say they now know the commuter train that de-railed was going too fast as it approached a curve. >> the preliminary information and let me emphasize this is preliminary information from the event recorders shows that the train was traveling at approximately 82 miles per hour as it went into a 30-mile-an-hour curve. >> investigators say it's too early to know if speeding was caused by operator or mechanical error like an issue with the brakes. >> we don't know whether the brakes went to zero pressure because of a valve change or be
, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart, former democratic congressman harold ford, jr. joining us from washington nbc's capitol hill correspondent luke russert. luke, i can't believe i'm saying the words government shut down and debt ceiling debacle once again, my friend. what are the chances that the two waring sides get together to pass a budget deal in the next two weeks? >> well, you'd think it would be good after what happened to congress's approval during the last shutdown fight and argument, especially for house republicans. but as of right now it doesn't necessarily have a very rosey outlook. there's been all this talk that paul ryan, the republican from wisconsin and patty murray, democrat from washington chairing this conference committee will figure out some way to lessen the impact of the sequester. as far as a wide reaching grand bargain, that's not going to happen. now they are trying to figure out, okay, what can we do to replace sequester cuts a lot of democrats and republicans don't like in the pentagon but still make it revenue neutral so republicans don't jump off th
and reconciliation was all about. a very powerful thing for this young journalist. jonathan hunt was at the time working in great britain. you have covered his life for much of your career. >> extraordinary man. to pick up on the themes of everybody including president barack obama himself of the forgiveness and reconciliation. i think there are two particular acts which stand out in my mind. first was in 1994, after he was inago ra inago rated first thing he did was have tea with a woman betsy, widow of the architect of the par tide, the most bitter enemy of the black population of south africa. nelson mandela sat and had tea with that man's widow. it was an extraordinary act. in 1995 moving forward. we talk about the unity coming to people from sports. rugby in south africa is not stretching it much to say it's a religion. it was always an entirely white religion, the most important sport in south africa. the 1995 world rugby cup a warded to south africa for the ending of a par tide. it was still almost entirely whites in the sport. nelson mandela in the absolutely unthinkable act just a i fe
'm joined by jonathan capehart, and john rosen that will, founder of stop handgun violence. i'll start with you, jonathan capehart. before we discuss the situation, i want the to ask about a joint statement today made by the family of newtown's victims. after thanking people for their kindness and thoughts at this time, they suggested the best way to help on saturday would be to perform an act of charity. i think that's something many people can relate to. and yet there are so many who think this is a time to also think about other collective action, including policy change. >> yes. well, you can understand, if you've met any of the families, the newtown families, you can understand, you know that the pain from a year ago is still very much -- very much present, very much on the surface. and so their desire, one for privacy, and two, for acts of kindness or charity, are understandable. but we also have to understand that there are people out there who have been fighting for gun violence reduction, changes in gun policies that would make it possible for there to be, you know, more safet
the people that were here those years ago. so jonathan -- what else is expected -- are there any events expected to happen at the apollo tonight? >> well, not tonight, like i said -- you just have started here. people are finally just stopping by, many people sharing memory as lot of people have stopped by to speak to us, and say i remember back in 1990 that we were standing -- we were here on top of the marque. some people remember being -- really at this point no sort of planned memorial, or anything, if you will, just a lot of people here sharing fond memories. but i am sure there are some things in the work. >> in harlem tonight, jonathan, thank you. there's been reaction from around the world, and we want to read some of it to you. bill clinton released this statement. history will remember nelson mandelaar a champion for human dignity, and freedom, for peace and reconciliation. >> president clinton said we will remember him as a man of uncommon grace and some passion, and embracing adverse say, not just a political strategy, but a way of life. president clinton posts a photo of hi
the people next to us begging for money and he said that that's okay for them to beg. >> so, jonathan, telling a kid to beg begs this question. are we teaching our kids to be takers instead of makers? >> kids and man in general are inclined to trade, not to beg. we're the thinking animal we want to trade value for value, not conquer and beg and ask for favors from other people. this young girl, this young person just like a lot of young people whether it's lemonade stands or roadside sales, they're excited about the idea of making something and having somebody pay them for it. those are the type of values we should be teaching, independence, self reliance, not more dependency from uncle sam. >> can you believe that park ranger told her she couldn't sell her mistletoe? >> it's ridiculous. we should be promoting these kinds of things in is great this girl did this. unfortunately i will not be surprised if we find out uncle sam comes knocking on her door next year asking for money. this perfectly reflects what's wrong in this country right now. there are too many rules, too many regulati
... >>> hello, welcome to al jazeera america. i am jonathan betz in new york. >> we are going fast and as it hit the curve, it was flying. moments of panic on a new york train as investigators tried to figure out what went wrong. >>> anger growing in ukraine. the largest protest in that country in nearly a decade. >>> demands that thailand's prime minister must go violent in bangkok streets and calls for a national strike. >>> tonight, crews are working to clear the scene of a train crash in new york city that de-railed on its way to manhattan. at least four people are dead, 63 more hurt of those, at least 11 are in critical condition tonight. al jazeera kimberly dukehardt has the latest from the bronx. >> fire fighters, police and the ntsb could not working through the night, checking the tracks, the actual train cars, mechanical equipment, communication equipment, to try to figure out what went horrible wrong. the holiday weekend ended in tragedy and chaos for those on board this suburban commuter train in northern new york city. the crash happened early sunday morning. >> incide
of the story. here with reaction, sara schaeffer and capitalist pig jonathan hoenig. fox news contributor. what do you think of that? >> i think councilman we have a serious problem of poverty in the district of columbia. i drove bit shelter on way to the studio. where he is wrong and misguided unfortunately that boosting the minimum wage doesn't make those low-skilled workers anymore valuable to the labor market. it mines places like walmart as you suggested are going to hire fewer people. it especially bad for young, unskilled workers. they're not simply looking for compensation. they're look for skills so they can then get the next job. i think that's a gross oversight. melissa: see, jonathan, i totally, when he says, you couldn't live on this wage, you couldn't support your family on this wage, that is abs absolutely true. i don't think anyone argues that. the problem this is a wage you earn to get started in the system working and then over time you're supposed to gain the skills and education to move out and do something else. the problem is, the very few people who get stuck as a career

this country with honor. >> ron reagan is a political analyst and jonathan capehart is an msnbc contributor. ron, this sort of old republican thing here about making fun of people because they're unemployed, i think of factory towns where the factory closes. and it's very hard to imagine just pulling up stakes and heading to some other part of the world to get a job. but that's what i guess rand paul thinks they ought to do quick as hell. and the idea the unemployed want to be unemployed is crazy because everybody hates being unemployed. everybody i met hated it except for a short time, nobody wants to watch television all day when they could be an active part of society and proud of themselves. >> well, it's another example that the republicans or particular republicans of being just counterfactual on the one hand. there are no studies that indicate that, you know, if you receive unemployment, you then don't want to work. and from a common sense point of view, how do you imagine that somebody who's already earned an inadequate salary is now going to be satisfied earning half of that money
